Wednesdays 12-2pm and by appointment
Research Interests: 

I am broadly interested in American environmental history, history of science and medicine, and history of foodways.  My dissertation examines the development of nutrition science in the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with a focus on chemists studying nutrition at land-grant universities in the mid to far West.  My research investigates the relationship between laboratory and field research in nutrition science and the connections between science, government, industry, and the public during this transformative period in American foodways.
